GALLHAMMER - ILL INNOCENCE VINYL / DVD news

The anticipated vinyl release of ‘Ill Innocence’, the highly-praised latest album by Japan’s queens of blackened punk, Gallhammer is out now. The vinyl will come as a Double-vinyl Gatefold release to a strictly limited edition. Order now from here.

 

Although Gallhammer had been known primarily as a black metal/punk act, the album is impressively diverse, showing their implementation of many influences and moods from both metal and non-metal genres. The themes are based around isolation, oppression, a world without colour, with Vivian describing the imagery like “Delirium - as being in a midday nightmare under the scorching sunshine”; all wrapped in a poetic disparity. ‘Ill Innocence’ also features recordings of the tracks ‘Speed of Blood’ & ‘At the Onset of the Age of Despair’ as previewed in demo form on ‘The Dawn of…'. The CD release of the album was met with great critical acclaim, particularly in the UK, with the band even given the honour of coverstars in metal publications Zero Tolerance, Terrorizer & Organ magazine.

 

‘Simply fucking horrible. In all the right ways’. - KKKK - Kerrang!

 

‘Discordant, disquieting dark metal excellence from Japan.’ -  * * * * - Big Cheese


‘Raw, subtle and satisfyingly dark ... excellent.’ - Metal Hammer

 

 

Gallhammer will also embark upon a tour of the UK in March to coincide with the LP release, ending with a trip to Norway to appear at the prestigious Inferno festival, where the band headlines the Garage stage.

Also, look out for Gallhammer’s forthcoming DVD release in the form of ‘Ruin of a Church’, capturing the band live & in scintillating form at Colchester Arts Centre, a stunning venue on the site of a deconsecrated church, on their 2007 European tour. The DVD includes additional footage from the tour, plus promo videos, gallery, and an intriguing video interview with the band. The audio mix and production has been executed by Justin Broadrick (Napalm Death, Godflesh, Jesu).
